Wait for It

Review:

Wait for It - M. O'Keefe

‘Wait for It’ by Molly O’Keefe is book Four in the “Everything I Left Unsaid” series.  This is the story of Tiffany and Blake.   I have not yet read the other books and I do feel that I would have enjoyed this book a little more if I had done so.  Tiffany has been in an abusive husband for years along with her three kids.  Tiffany’s husband does have a rich brother that seems as cold as her husband. Blake has his own issue and at first does seem to try to just get rid of Tiffany and the kids via money.  But when Tiffany runs into more trouble Blake goes forward with trying to actually help her.  Although it is still in a mix up way and Tiffany does seem to jump at the mixed up offer.  Both Tiffany and Blake have issues and seeing them slowly work them out and come together was exciting to watch.  “My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.”

If the Duke Demands

Review:

If the Duke Demands (Capturing the Carlisles) - Anna Harrington

‘If the Duke Demands’ by Anna Harrington is book One in the “Capturing the Carlisles” series.  This is the story of Miranda and Sebastian.   Miranda thinks she is in love with Robert, who is Sebastian brother.  Miranda has known Sebastian and his family since she was young girl.  Which to Miranda it makes them think of her as a young girl still.  But she is 21 years old and she wants Robert to notice her as a women.  But Robert is looking to court someone else so Miranda tries to sneak into his room at night to show him that she is a women.  But she accidentally goes into Sebastian room and at first neither one knows who the other but that doesn’t last long.  Once they realize who the other one is they break away and swear to never mention this to anyone.  But the next day they do settle on a pack to help each other out with the up and coming season.  Sebastian is going to be looking for a wife to be his Duchess and he has very high standards for this wife who will fit what he needs.  Miranda has offered to help him with this if Sebastian help with getting his brother to notice that she is a grown women.   But along the way, they find what they thought they wanted wasn’t what their hearts actually wanted.
Ms. Harrington is one of my favorite authors.  I love how she takes you into their story.   I felt so sad for Miranda and sometimes Sebastian did make me made with his attitude…. but he came through for me in the end.  There are some books you just wish you could rate more than 5 stars and for me this is one of those books!!  Loved it!  “My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.”

Windswept

Review:

Windswept - Sabrina Jeffries, Deborah Martin

‘Windswept’ by Sabrina Jeffries (Deborah Martin) is book Two in the “Wales” series. This is the story is the story of Catrin and Evan. Please note that this was originally written under the pseudonym name Deborah Martin and released in 1996. Ms. Jeffries has now re-released under her current name.
I have not had the chance to read the book on its earlier release so I was happy to have it back in circulation with a beautiful new cover. This book is surround with a mystery that there is a curse on Catrin family. Where the women who marry that do not drink from an ancient chalice at her wedding is doomed to be a widow within three years. Evans who we met in the first book ‘Stormswept ‘ is out to find out what happened to his friend. We start to see Evan and Catrin come together along with solving the mystery that is on going. “My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.”

The Second Time Around

Review:

The Second Time Around (The Worthingtons) - Ella Quinn

‘The Second Time Around’ by Ella Quinn is book 2.5 in “The Worthingtons series “.  This is the story of Patience and Richard.  I have read the other books in this series but feel this can be a standalone book.  This is a Semi-Novella with about 105 pages and the story is a ‘Second Chance at Love” theme.
Patience is now a widow with four children who are the ward of her Step-Son Matt.  Matt we met in the first book “Three Weeks to Wed” who married a women with 7 younger siblings.  So you can image that house is one busy place.  Richard went on a World Tour but had promised to return for her coming out ball but failed to do so and when he did return Patience was days away from marrying and older man.  Now several years later with Patience being a widower Richard has come to her wanting to start again. Patience is still hurt from him not returning but goes forward to spend time with him.  
This was another good book by Ms. Quinn!

The King & His Queen

Review:

The King & His Queen (Pict King Series Book 3) - Donna Fletcher

‘The King & His Queen’ by Donna Fletcher is book Three in the “Pict King” Series. This is the story of Talon and Hemera. We do meet Talon in the first book and Hemera in the second book. Talon and Hemera do meet in the second book and have a little story line. I have loved this series and Ms. Fletcher’s books so I would hate to see you miss any of her books but this can be a standalone book.
Talon is the King of the Pict but his command has been coming into question due to the fact he has been married twice but has not produced in any heirs. Both wives were let go so that he can move forward in finding a wife that can produce a son/child. His former wives did remarry and have children. So Talon’s people are starting to question his future as king. Hemera is the sister in-law to Talon’s trusted guard/friend. Talon is under the impression that she is slow minded from the way she acts and talks. But the more he gets to know her the more he realizes that might not be the case. Either way he is having a hard time staying away from her. Hemera likes to be by herself allot to think. The other thing she loves is to be in the woods and work on her garden. Talon works to keep her safe by trying to keep her confined to inside and not go beyond the gates. But Talon is finding that Hemera lives by her own rules.
I truly wish I could put into words how much I enjoyed this book. From reading the other books I had slowly and painfully waited for this book to come out. Talon is the strong Alpha male who is trying to understand his growing feelings for Hemera. Talon has to struggle with finding a wife that will produce strong children and help him rule over his people. At first, he didn’t even think that Hemera would even be someone to consider for that position. Hemera was used to always trying to protect her sister and deal with the hardships that came with that. In addition, she likes to stay to herself and she doesn’t see things as others do. But she does start to have and attraction to Talon. Hemera knows that she will never be his Queen and not just because he wouldn’t consider it but because she wouldn’t want to give up her freedom that she has now.
I highly recommend this whole series and wish that there was a higher rating that 5 Stars for this book and the series.

Heartbreaker

Review:

Heartbreaker: A Filthy Dirty Love Novel - Stacey Kennedy

4.5 Stars
‘Heartbreaker’ by Stacey Kennedy is book One in the “Filthy Dirty Love” series. This is the story of Maddox and Joss. Maddox is a season cop but only has one night stands. Doesn’t do second nights or dates. Joss has just gotten out of police training and is now working under Maddox. Both are fighting their attraction that actually started a year ago when they met at a bar. Neither knew the other person name and they had a quickie in the bathroom. But the memory has been in both of their minds and they can’t get over the hot, exciting encounter they had. Joss had just broken up with her boyfriend of six years when she had her sexual encounter with Maddox and to this day she still is holding a grudge against that relationship. Vowing to near get involved for long term again. When they meet that year later, they both at first don’t acknowledge their first meeting. Maddox still wants her but wonders if he can trust her know that he is her boss.
This was a really hot and exciting read! I enjoyed reading how these two were coming together and getting over their past. I loved the epilogue..it always such a please when the author puts one in…like a ‘cherry on top’.
